Next Stop Greece

In one month and 1 day we’re leaving for Greece! And we can’t wait! My mom it turning 70 on the 4th of Sepetember and she has invited us to Crete.This will be my 5th time to Greece. I’ve been to Samos when I was 5, Thassos at 17, Crete at 19 and Kos at 28. The fun part with Crete is that almost on date I will be back in the same village – 20 years later! We arrive in Chania on the 10th, 20 years ago it was the 12th. We will stay in Platanias, then a tiny little village now much bigger of what I can see on the internet!

Then back in 1991, we had one little photo of the hotel in the traveling agencys catalog. And we phoned in our order.

A Sunday in January this year we all sat and surfed the internet, looked at loads of photos and finally found THE ONE!
We are traveling with Apollo, and we have booked a 3 room masionnet at Proimos Masionnettes. It’s a small place, only 12 maisonnetes and ours is the only one with 2 bedrooms.

For the first time I will be swimming in a Greek pool and the hotel is only 100 m from the beach.

We have rented a car that will be waiting for us in the airport so we can go every where we want. Today with the internet we can plan the whole trip ahead. Book the car from home, email with the hotel ovner Constantinos who has a son age 5. We can ask questions on Facebook, look at photos from the hotel on their homepage. It’s so fun planing!

We have loads to see and we will be in the pool or the beach alot! My plan is to use this blog as our taveling dairy since we have free internet on the hotel!

But first a taste of Greece, click on the photos to enlarge them!

  1. Ih, Mette, hvor vi glæder os, det bliver s-k-ø-n-t 🙂
    Jeg var jo i Grækenland sidste gang i 1994 fra 7. sep. til 7. okt. sommeren efter fars død. Det var på “øhop” først på Syros, så Paros, så Sifnos og sluttede på Milos.
    Der er bare så dejligt, men aldrig har jeg været på Kreta.
    Det ser ud til at være nogle flotte biler, vi skal rigtig opleve en masse 🙂
    Samos og Thasos var også dejlige øer, dejlige ferier med dig og far.
    Masser af knus fra Mor.
